When we get to Medvode, at first traffic light we turn left across the railway track in the direction of Golo Brdo, Žleb and Preska. Behind railway track we continue right on the main road towards Preska, on the main road, we drive to first road exit on the left. Further, we drive through the settlement, after that, when on the right side we notice sports field of the nearby primary school, we turn left on the road Cesta v Žlebeh. When residential houses on the right side of the road ends, we get to the settled parking lot, where we park.
B) From Škofja Loka, Kranj or Vodice we drive to Medvode, from there we continue driving towards Ljubljana. At the last traffic light in Medvode, which is located about 100 m ahead from store Hofer, we turn right across the railway track in the direction of Golo Brdo, Žleb and Preska. Behind railway track we continue right on the main road towards Preska, on the main road, we drive to first road exit on the left. Further, we drive through the settlement, after that, when on the right side we notice sports field of the nearby primary school, we turn left on the road Cesta v Žlebeh. When residential houses on the right side of the road ends, we get to the settled parking lot, where we park.
Path description:
At the end of the parking lot is located a marked crossing, where we continue right in the direction of Jeterbenk and Katarina (left Slavkov dom on Golo Brdo). The path at first leads on a macadam road which after a smaller house changes into a cart track, from which we continue left in the forest, where at first we cross a stream. Further, we are gently ascending on occasionally overgrown path which leads us past several smaller crossings, where we follow the blazes. After few minutes of gentle ascent, the path turns slightly to the left and gradually descends to the forest road which we only cross. Next follows some descend, and then we reach an asphalt road and we follow it to the right, but we walk there only a short time because red signposts point us to the left towards the nearby fruit press.
We bypass the fruit press pr Andrej on the left side, and behind it we continue over a small bridge in the forest. In the forest at first we continue right and in few minutes ascend to a cart track, on which we step out of the forest. The path ahead leads us on the mentioned cart track, and at first past the house, and then with nice views on Polhograjsko hribovje. After a short descent, we reach an asphalt road which we only cross, because we continue on a macadam road. The road soon split on two parts, and we continue on the left bottom, on which we quickly get to the left turn, by which there is a marked parking lot Žlebe.
From the parking lot, we continue on a cart track in the direction of Katarina, Jeterbenk and St Marjeta (left Petelinc), which continues on the left side of the stream. After few 10 strides we leave mentioned cart track and we continue right into the forest, where at first we descend to a stream which we also cross. On the other side for s short time we are still gently ascending, and then the path turns right and it ascends steeper. A little higher we get to a marked crossing, where we continue left (right church of St Marjete 3 minutes) and on next one nearby again left. A little further, the path split on two parts, and we continue on the bottom left (right Jeterbenk over Turnice), which then for some time isn't marked, on the most of the crossings is marked.
From unmarked crossing at first we lightly descend to a smaller ditch, and then we are gently ascending to a cart track which we follow to the left, we walk there to the spot, where signs "Petelinc" point us to the right on a steeper path, on which in few minutes we get to a meadow (by the edge of the meadow is a bench), over which we ascend steeply. The path ahead returns into the forest and past the ruins brings us to a marked crossing, where we join the marked path from Slavkov dom on Golo Brdo.
Here we continue right and start ascending on the ridge of Jeterbenk, from which occasionally a view opens up a little towards the south. Higher, we reach some kind of the secondary peak, from which we descend on a smaller saddle, where we join the path from Katarina. Here we continue straight and in few steps we reach the peak, in the middle of which stands a big cross.
From a crossing few steps below the summit we continue in the direction of Katarina and at first steep descend through the forest and then we get to a holiday cottage, where the path flattens and brings us on the road. We continue on the road which quickly brings us to a crossing at the chapel.
With the mentioned crossing, which is located by the edge of the forest we continue straight (sharply left Jeterbenk, left Slavkov dom on Golem Brdu) on a road with a view, on which we quickly get to the next crossing, from where we continue straight on a footpath which continues between two roads (left road leads towards Katarina, and right towards the farm Kozomer). The path ahead quickly ascend to the bench and table, after that for a short time it continues by the edge of the forest, where a beautiful view opens up. Higher, the path goes into the forest and brings us on the secondary peak, from which it descends past the cottage to the cart track. On the cart track, we are ascending only for a short time, and then at the spot, where the cart track turns a little to the right, we continue straight upwards on a well-beaten footpath which starts ascending steeply through a meadow. Higher, the path goes into the forest, where it ascends even steeper. When a little higher we step out of the forest we are already on the summit of Rog by big wooden cross.
From the top, we continue on a pleasant ridge path with a nice view, and then the path crosses a lane of a forest, after which we get to a crossing. At the crossing, the path towards the church of St. Katarina branches off to the left, and we continue slightly right on a little less distinct, but still easy to follow footpath which for some time continues through meadow, and then passes into the forest and descends to narrower macadam road which leads from Topol towards the hamlet Brezovica. A short time we walk on the road which we follow to the right, and then we get to a well-marked crossing, which is located by the edge of smaller hamlet.
The marked path hamlet bypasses on the right side, and then continues on a wide cart track, from which a nice view opens up on our destination and in good weather also on Kamnik Savinja Alps and Posavsko hribovje. On the other side of panoramic meadow path gets closer to the forest, where joins the path from Sora and Preska. Here as well, we continue left, on a cart track we walk only few 10 strides, because then blazes lead right on a relatively steep path which continues by the edge of the forest (even if we continue on a cart track we will come to the summit). During the ascent a nice view opens up towards Polhograjska Grmada, and from the summit, which we reach after few minutes also towards other peaks of Polhograjsko hribovje.
